I am declaring this a FINISH of a UFO for February. Top is done, binding cut, and it's been shipped off to the 'spa' to be quilted. This is a fantastic Jolly Bar quilt to do as you 'stop and start' other projects. That is mostly how i did it. Cut it all out, then sewed it between other projects. Jolly Bars are a Fat Quarter shop exclusive precut of 5" x 10" rectangles... yummy stuff and... Sending off to be quilted is a sweet finish indeed! I made this quilt using Sundrops.. not much of it left but i... Continue reading

Amy of During Quiet Time is a good buddie of mine AND a very talented designer. When Amy asked if I'd do a write up of her Improv Paper Piecing book I was honored and thrilled! You can read it at Amazon. Her books are amazing teaching tools, and sources for patterns. I love how her cover is a cropped version of Paper Trail. Which IS my favorite quilt in the book! She shows you several ways to layout the blocks. So I really wanted to give this a try.. but which quilt? I decided on Peacock Crossing. I liked... Continue reading

Sorry to hear you had an issue. I've personally used it for 20 years on hundreds of quilts and it's worked fine for me. But everyone should always test EVERY marking product they use.

For 2016 each Aurifil designer used blue and white. Many used their own fabric lines. Some used solids, Most had different shade of 'white' or 'eggshell/off white' Some had only lights in their prints'. My job each year is to set the blocks. I find it a lot of fun to do! These are BIG blocks so I went with a off white frame using Moda Grunge in Vanilla which has some texture. Then a navy frame in my own Sunday Drive Batiks. White sashing to separate the blocks. You could easily put a border on this one. Would you... Continue reading
